From Library Journal
From Andre Norton's poignant tale of the last surviving Templar and the choice he must make to live or die ("Red Cross, White Cross") to Josepha Sherman's fanciful story of a young knight and his most unusual steed ("Knight Mare"), the 14 stories (and one song) in this collection chronicle the feats and follies of the brotherhood of knights. Contributions from veteran authors including Niki Kiriki Hoffman, Jean Rabe, Brendan DuBois, and Tanya Huff provide a varied and always intriguing look at a legendary time of romance, violence, and, above all, honor. For most fantasy collections.

Romantics, followers of King Arthur and his legendary company, and anyone whose heart has ever leapt at the thought of going on a quest--here are 15 fabulous stories just for you! In Rosemary and India Edghill's "Killer in the Reign," a former "Table Knight" turned gumshoe tracks a mysterious killer who murders young women and hangs them on trees in the faerie Queen of the Wood's rose wood. Andre Norton's "Red Cross, White Cross" is the compelling story of the last Knight Templar to escape King Philip of France--a stalwart who allows nothing, not even death, to part him from the holy lance and grail entrusted to him. In Brendan DuBois' "The Cross of God," a knight of the Crusades has his faith shattered when he travels into the future and sees the horrific crimes of the Holocaust, committed under the same holy symbol that he had fought for. The rest of these excellent newly made legends are as entertaining and imaginative. Paula Luedtke

KNIGHT FANTASTIC is a fantastic anthology as each of the fourteen tales is well written and keeps reader's attention. The knights are all heroes that strive to meet the expected code of conduct in a medieval world filled with deadly mystical and human foes willing to cheat to kill them. The opening ballad is different, but adds credence that the editors and all the contributors were paying homage to one of the more interesting characters of history, The Knight of the Realm.
